[Release] Janne Huttunen's Locate32 Addon v3.0.7.8190-070907

Post by Mrs Peel » Sun Feb 05, 2006 9:08 pm

I use this File Search utility in tandem with Agent Ransack. It has a slew of configuration settings which you will need to set up to your own personal taste on first run when you index your own personal search database.

Included with this release is some of my own reg entries to pre-configure a few things, added entries to the shell menu and configured ONE blank database to get you started - but it is only set to scan your C drive, so you will need to edit those settings to suit yourself post-install.

Shortcuts will be added to Program Menu\Utilities and All Users\Start Menu. The native uninstaller for this program does not so a clean uninstall, so I wrote a full inf uninstaler for it instead.

Please note, this is a stable beta release which has sorted most of the bugs in previous beta builds and I haven't found any problems with this verion.

Locate32
This program saves names of all files in your hard drives to file database. After that you can locate files. Very fast.

This program works like updatedb and locate in Unix systems. Win32 based locating program also included. Program works with Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/XP (and with Windows 95 if Internet Explorer 3 is installed).

Before you can use program you must create file database. Run updatedb.exe or updtdb32.exe if you have Windows'95 or Windows NT. You can also create database by using Locate32.

Locate has support for perl compatible regular expression and implemented using PCRE library.

Not one single response to this in the 18 months since I shared it here, not even to say thanks for the updates??????

What an ungrateful bunch of lazy lurking leechers you are!

Added to my "Cull Alert" list..... :rolleyes:

Question: when you say use with agent ransack, how exactly does this integrate with it? Thanks.

It doesn't integrate at all, I use them for different purposes.

I have locate32 set to index drives on first bootup each day, and any new files I have created that day (which will not be indexed by Locate32 till my next boot tomorrow) I use Ransack because it is the only real time file search (which doesn't require indexing and/or background scanning) that has anywhere near a decent scanning speed.

And who likes to mess about with such idiotic configurations and wait so long for native windoze search feature.... not me that's for sure :P

PS: And it's kinda a moot point now anyhoo, cos as you will notice, this has been nuked now because none of my lazy lurking leechers had the decency to speak out to save it. It needed just one to save it and now it will require five to resurrect it from the dead ;)
